About the treatment
Cosmetic and medical tattooing involves micropigmentation of the skin to create a long-lasting colour change in selected areas to achieve certain effects. In some cases, pigmentation is a valuable alternative or complement to other aesthetic and medical treatments.
What is cosmetic and medical tattooing/pigmentation?
In cosmetic/medical tattooing – also called micropigmentation – the skin is pigmented to create a long-lasting colour change and thus achieve a desired aesthetic effect. Typically, a handheld device or a manual method is used to apply the pigment exactly where the colour change is desired.
In some situations, the technique provides a valuable alternative or complement to standard treatments to improve appearance, or to correct an aesthetic problem. In particular, treatments aimed at recreating natural aesthetic aspects, such as eyebrow tattooing and eyeliner, require artistic talent and experience to achieve a successful result.
What is treated?
Areas treated are usually eyebrows, eyelids, lips and scars or marks from removed tattoos. The technique is also used to recreate the areola in aesthetic breast cancer reconstruction.
How long does the treatment last?
To achieve the desired results, the treatment may need to be repeated several times. Once completed, it usually lasts a year or more, depending on the type of treatment and individual circumstances. We go through all this carefully when discussing which treatment can give you the results you want.
